Updated details were revealed for the mixed-use development dubbed ‘Old Town Canvas’ at 1610 N LaSalle Drive. Developer Fern Hill showed the new renderings at a community meeting earlier this week, with neighbors voicing their concerns. Local design firm GREC Architects is working on the tower which will replace the existing Walgreens on the corner with W North Avenue.
Community meetings have been scheduled for two upcoming mixed-use towers in Old Town and West Loop. Combined the projects will bring over 800-residential units to the city; with one being located at 370 N Carpenter Street in the West Loop and the other being Old Town Canvas at 1610 N LaSalle Drive.
Construction progress at 1043 N Rush Street, a mixed-use development in the Near North Side, has reached the completion of structural work for its two floors. The 20,709-square-foot project, led by L3 Capital and designed by GREC Architects, is characterized by a future exterior of tan brick cladding, dark metal features, and arched bays on the street level.
A new tenant has been revealed for the long vacant Treasure Island grocery store building at 1639 N Wells Street in Old Town. Located just north of the intersection with W North Avenue, the large space is part of the larger area redevelopment led by Chicago-based Fern Hill. The building will receive a facelift led by GREC Architects who are working on the tower next door.
Multiple design iterations have been revealed for the base of the upcoming mixed-use development at 1610 N LaSalle Drive in Old Town. Sitting right on the intersection with W North Avenue, the tower is part of the upcoming Moody Church Auditorium redevelopment proposed in 2021. The project is being led by Chicago-based developer Fern Hill, with GREC Architects working on the design from now on.
